Un-Startitis

Every knitter loves to plan new projects, right? Startitis.   New yarn, new pattern, new everything;  just plain fun.   Last night, amazingly, I realized, I have the opposite of startitis.   I am tired of new projects!

It may be because I’ve taken out the fun of yarn shopping and trying to use stash.  It’s possible the fact that every project I’ve done in the last month has taken only a matter of hours to complete.

I don’t know.   Whatever it is, Saturday I started and finished a little baby sweater (Composite, so cute and quick!), and Sunday afternoon realized I had not started a new project. AND DIDN’T WANT TO.

I am tired of gauge swatches, especially since my gauge is out of control again and I’m knitting everything on size 2 needles.  Ugh.  I need a long project.  A Rock Island.  A sweater.  Something substantial. I think that’s it at least.  Maybe?

Then I start mentally searching my stash.  I have yarn for Hemlock Ring.  There is enough Steven Loves Tosh for that little sweater I picked last fall.  So I should start digging through my needles and figuring out gauge.

Legwarmers

Legwarmers

Instead I decide to do some legwarmers to match the baby sweater.  I can’t give just one thing, right?  No swatch, needles handy, all set.  There you go.  I knit and still, laziness complete.

 

P.S.  I feel this little sweater is a bit plain with no color variation.  Is it just because I’m not a fan of green?
